Windows XP "Access denied to setup files"

Unread post by CalmCreeper360 »

I tried installing Windows XP via a CD and it refused to copy some files.
Then in the next stage if the setup it would say that the access is denied to some files and that the setup cant continue.
I tried the CD in a VM and it worked perfectly fine.
Dunno if i should reformat the drive, as i only installed XP to an already formatted drive with the drivers on it.

EDIT: i also tried an external USB DVD driver but nothing changed.

Maybe delete partition, then quick NTFS format from XP setup?
